Recently my husband bought me a couple of Lekue silicone baking pans. He showed me the picture of them on his E-bay buying screen. I said sure I’d try them. Since I’ve never used this kind of cook ware before I was really excited to give them a try. He is always finding things on E-bay since he likes to buy and sell on that site. He did come across a good deal so we were both happy. A 9′ round pan was only $7.99, so my husband bought me 2. When I got my new Lekue pans I was pleasantly surprised that they were made of flexible silicone. I guess I should have read more about what he was buying for me. I wasn’t sure what I was getting when it came in the mail. I just saw the cooking pan on the screen and liked the pretty blue color of it so I said O.K. buy it. I was skeptical at first when it came to the house.
I immediately decided to bake something in my new pan and I have to say that my recipe for peach cobbler turned out perfectly. I baked the peach cobbler as directed. The Lekue flexible silicone baking pan allowed me to be able to handle it with ease. The cobbler baked evenly, no burnt edges and it was easy to get out of the pan. The Lekue silicone pan was also easy to clean up. I was pleasantly impressed.
In researching this product I found that this company, Lekue has been around for over 10 years and has been a pioneer in the innovation of Silicone baking pans.
Lekue Flexible Silicone bake ware
With a 4 out 5 star rating I truly love my new bake ware. I have to agree with the ratings, and would definitely recommend this product. As I removed my Peach cobbler from the oven I immediately noticed that the rim of the pan was cool enough to touch only after moments of pulling it out. You do need to use both hands when handling the bake ware since it is silicone and very flexible. The Lekue silicone bake ware will not flake, fade or wear. This bake ware bakes evenly, with no burnt bottoms or edges. It is safe for all ovens up to 550*. This bake ware can easily go in the microwave and the freezer. It is easily cleaned and can go in the dishwasher. Being soft and pliable it is easy to handle and stores with no effort. I am going to look into this product further and get a couple of different sized pans. I highly recommend it.
